Birthday Wishes


Here's my card for the OWH sketch challenge #241. I used all SU! papers and cardstock in their IN colors. The punches are from SU! and I added mini brads and pearls to the flower centers. The leaves were hand-cut by folding strips of white cardstock longway, and feeding them through the paper crimper on a diagonal slant, then hand-cutting them into assorted sizes and shapes.

That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!

This looks like spring! Love those crimped leaves and thanks for the idea of doing that. Nice colorways, and love the tiny scant borders you've used to trim the center dp. A lovely floral bouquet to send along with this birthday wish. Sure to bring lots of cheer. TFS & Hugs

Great papers and the flowers on this are so fabulous (but I am a flower fanatic when it comes to cards since I can't grow them or keep them alive - lol). Great colors too. Beautiful card. Hugz

Carol,

That flower bouquet is fabulous! You've inspired me to do something with that SU petite petals bundle of mine. :)
